Life Throws At You

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Amazing as always,

life throws at you,

the things you least expect,

turning you topsy-turvy

and changing your life forever.

With thoughts reeling,

with great feeling,

I roll back the years,

through eyes misty with tears,

remembering the days,

when life seemed as sweet as cherries

and my heart was filled with my first love.

The years rolled on,

life threw at me,

good and bad times

as I went rolling along.

With my last love,

life always seemed to be,

a virtual spree to me.

there were no worries,

when I had a loving hand to hold,

no fears when I had arms around me.

Like with a movie reel,

that suddenly snaps the film,

it stops and you wonder -

Will the show go on?

Now I poignantly smile,

at the crossroads of my life,

with my first love and my last love gone,

I know that somewhere in eternity -

my last love will be waiting for me.
